Stalley ft. Schoolboy Q—NineteenEighty7

After releasing his mixtape, Honest Cowboy, Cleveland’s Stalley drops the visuals for “NineteenEighty7” where he raps about life in the drug trade and makes constant references to Los Angeles. His affiliation to the west coast is reinforced by Black Hippy’s Schoolboy Q—who lays down the chorus for the track—and by the posse that follows Stalley throughout the entire video dressed in black “Compton” hats and t-shirts. The grimy theme of the track is complemented by a gritty piano-and-drum-laced beat produced by Terrace Martin whose name has been buzzing in the Hip-Hop community as of late—especially after the release of his recent album 3ChordFold, which contains “Triangleship” featuring Kendrick Lamar. Take note, however, that “NineteenEighty7” strays away from Martin’s typical style of production in order to accommodate Stalley’s more urban focus. Check out the video above.
